There are so many streets in Flushing in that area where there are no traffic lights and no stop signs. DOT needs to put in more safety features. I grew up in Bayside and remember going to Main Street for shopping and don’t ever remember it being that crowded with either foot or vehicle traffic. Too many people getting driver’s licenses who can barely speak English. Driving is a privilege not a constitutional right.

Members of the advisory body will advocate concerns through means of community engagement by participating in one of two cohorts. The first will be made up of high school representatives between the ages of 13 and 17, while the second cohort will be comprised of young adults between the ages of 18 and 25.
